I have pre-ordered. Due for release in May 2022, Weaponized is Neal Asher next Polity book.

With the advent of new AI technology, Polity citizens now possess incredible lifespans. Yet they struggle to find meaning in their longevity, seeking danger and novelty in their increasingly mundane lives.

On a mission to find a brighter future for humanity, ex-soldier Ursula fosters a colony on the hostile planet Threpsis. Here, survival isn’t a given, and colonists thrive without their AI guidance. But when deadly alien raptors appear, Ursula and her companions find themselves forced to adapt in unprecedented ways. And they will be pushed to the very brink of what it means to be human.

As a desperate battle rages across the planet, Ursula must dig deep into her past if she is to save humanity’s future.

Just downloaded my copy and will probably start this once i've finished my re-read of the Gaunt's Ghosts series.

I might read Jack Four first, though.

Jack Four is very good and this is, as I understand it, a sequel to that. I'll be waiting on the paperback pricing! :ROFLMAO:

Quite unlike usual Asher in that it is from a single POV (Jack Four), but all other usual elements of Asher are present and correct. Crazy and deadly aliens, super high tech and mega action!

A strange planetary name choice.
Threpsis, sounds like something you should see the doctor about.
( It is actually Greek for nutrition which may or may not be relevant to the plot. )

I'm maybe halfway through reading Weaponized now and it is indeed following the standard Asher violent sci-fi format.
I'm not enamoured of the way he's telling the story, it's jumping from Past to Near Past to Present throughout the chapters, I keep scrolling back through the book to keep it clear in my mind.
